Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness worldwide.
60 million Americans are at RISK for developing Glaucoma
Prevent Blindness America Survey found that:
* Blindness ranked third (after cancer and heart disease) as peoples major fear.
* It is estimated that over 4 million Americans have glaucoma but only half of those know they have it.
* Glaucoma is 6 to 8 times more common in African-Americans than Caucasians.
* Everyone is at risk for glaucoma from babies to senior citizens. Yes, older people are at a higher risk for glaucoma but babies can be born with glaucoma (approximately 1 out of every 10,000 babies born in the United States).
Diaton Tonometer is intended for use by Inpatient & Outpatient Clinics such as Hospitals, Emergency Rooms, Nursing & Elderly Homes, General & Specialty Practitioners as well as Ophthalmologists and Optometrists.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in all age groups - from children to senior citizens. Everyone needs to get diagnosed to prevent blindness.
While most people have heard of glaucoma, they may not realize that glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness in the United States. It may also come as a surprise that there are four major types of glaucoma.
Glaucoma is basically damage to the optic nerve, which carries information from the eye to the brain.
